I think so. Also, I think the same issue is manifesting in other
personal calendars shared on osaf.us which we are using for our
tests. I fear some of the recent errors we have been seeing in
Chandler are related to data corruption in the test calendars
published on osaf.us. That's just a guess right now.

Since it is a patch release being rolled out on production, certain
minimum QA process is certainly required.
1. put the release candidate on qacosmo, verify bug 8304
2. run full automated regression and functional test suite (this is
half days work since some of the tests will have to be reworked to
make them compatible with the old UUIDs which were changed in 0.7)
3. test chandler+cosmo interoperability (mostly manual)
This should take us about a day.
Plus whatever time Jared takes to setup staging and running the
upgrade tests against that.
